How does that work?
most routers since 2015 have one or more USB ports you can attach a drive to, and access the files on that drive across your network, even remotely while away from home if it's routed correctly for basically your own cloud storage. technically a usb3 drive can transfer files as fast as a 1gig ethernet/isp can handle it - but you need a lot of cpu power to translate between the usb i/o bus system and tcp/ip packets the internet and ethernet uses. home computers are typically using usb drives to local bus ssd/hdd devices because the mobo's have their own i/o bus chips, but when you transfer between the same usb to the internet/ethernet then your local pc cpu gets a workout.

No. FiOS does not use a modem. It is possible to use your own router. Search google for "use my own router with fios"

It looks like you can get the 2600 with the same modem for $15 less.

I bought a tp link AC1750 a couple years ago and was very frustrated with their firmware. Hopefully they have improved its since then but that experience has made me weary of their products. I stick with Asus routers now.

Was really curious why a router's CPU would be highlighted.

That's some solid marking BS, but possibly useful for me if the port draws enough power for a portable drive.

Since you gave such a thorough answer earlier can you answer this:

Am I the only person on this website who doesn't care about having their nightly-build custom firmware? I feel like every comment on every router post revolves around the damn firmware.

Why is it that the 0.5% of users who even know what firmware is are all going nuts about not being able to flash their custom build all over SD?

What use cases is stock firmware 'frustrating'?


I must be the only one here looking for a stable new router that is (physically) mountable and won't overheat.

I can only speak for myself, not all of SD, but my own insistence that my routers run popular open source firmware stems from the fact that router makers are only obligated to update their firmware for widely known security reasons - not to add functions and enhance existing features. would you buy a pc or smartphone and leave it stuck with it's original OS over 5 years of it's effective lifespan? I wouldn't.

additionally many avoid using routers provided by their ISP for privacy reasons - so why would you then turn around and use stock OEM firmware where a router making company is spying on you, instead of an ISP. such reasons may step into tin foil hate wearing territory, but if you've followed privacy issue news enough, you soon learn that if some company can legitimately exploit your privacy for profit - they will.

as to lack of hanging hole/tabs to aid in heat dissipation - DIY network techs will find a way; http://i.imgur.com/scAPSsr.jpg ( another solution i use are putting equipment on baking racks like https://www.amazon.com//dp/B000F5M03A ) if you are considering a router that has a built in fan - don't buy it - fans are a $1 last minute solution to a poorly heat dissipation engineering problem, or so that maker can get away with over clocking/volting older component parts - this is the problem with pretty much every noname chinese LED bulb promoted on SD.

I got the TP Link Archer C7 AC1900 router with this exact same modem for $110 almost 2 years ago, and it has been solid for 4K streaming and gaming.
